Hi everyone I am super new to the whole cake thing, I have done cakes for myself. But I want to learn how to do wedding cakes and things, but I do not know what kind of cake to use, what's the best for stability. Also does anyone have a great recipe? There are allllll kinds of recipe's on here but I just don't know what one to use!!!
Thanks so much!
The inbly recipes that don't wirk well for wedding cakes are super fluffy cakes like angel food or super wet cakes tire tres leches- otherwise most varieties of cakes work fine for wedding cakes so long as you are using an internal support system. For carving I prefer pound cake or other dense recipes.
For wedding cakes, you can use any kind of cake, as long as you use the correct support. For carving, I would use a denser cake recipe that will stand up to the carving.
Thanks so much
There are some great recipes on this site. For scratch, I use the Hershey's chocolate one if I want to carve- it's the best. For doctored mixes, WASC is a good all 'round carving/stacking cake too... Have fun!
